    Hi guys, this is my first post in another forums and nice to meet you all;)

    anyway, kenny 83 and Bulldog UK, I think the ti4200 4x is faster than the 8500 radeon . Even the Gf3 ti200 is still abit faster
    and djxtrancex I think with that price range like everyone is saying the 8500 would be a good choice but I don't know if could handle 3dmax though.. well good luck:thumb:

    One thing that I find interesting is people often forget to build a balanced system. For example....it doesn't make sense to spend $400 on a top of the line CPU and then install a $50 graphics card just like it doesn't make sense to install a 9800Pro or a 5900FX on an old 700MHz celeron system.

    If you are planning on building a system you should consider your overall budget, your planned use of the computer, and then plan to build the fastest system possible for your needs and budget.

    Most people that frequent these forums are very interested in 3D performance and consequently are more interested in buying a $400 graphics card to go with a $100 CPU and then overclock it. This generally works much better than buying a $400 CPU to go with a $100 graphics card.

    Some people think that they should go out and buy a $400 graphics card and then toss it into their old Gateway celeron system figuring they'll save up for the rest of the system and build it in six months. This is a poor strategy because in six months the $400 graphics card will possibly be available for $200.

    Then there are people who want to take their old system and give it a relatively inexpensive boost from the 4MB or 8MB onboard graphics controller by adding an inexpensive (sub $50) graphics card. This is probably a good investment along with a little extra RAM to bring a two or four year old computer back to life and still able to play some of the more recent games with reasonable quality. It would be pointless to spend more money on such a sytem for a higher end card IMO.

    My second PC (I'm using it to type this message) is primarily for family and kid use and it runs Windows XP on its 900MHz Athlon and GF4MX440 very nicely. I saw a huge improvement when I upgraded the graphics from an older 32MB TNT2. :thumb: It is now a well balanced system...as is my primary system (see signature).
    ASUS A7N8X Deluxe, Athlon Barton 2500+ with SLK-800 and 4800rpm 80mm fan, ATi 9700Pro(AIW), Dual 256MB Corsair XMS 3200c. Seagate Barracuda SATA. 200MHz fsb with 11X multiplier, RAM latency: 2,2,2,5
